Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Edition I was happy to get a classic in a leather edition for so cheap! I would buy it again for a friend, however, there are a few flaws with this edition of the book. PROS 1. classic story for a good price! 2. the book is stunning! Lovely art work on the leather bound book's cover and in it. The inner cover and pages have great little illustrations and I love the royal blue book mark robin. the gold on the pages is also so wonderful it really pulls it all together. A classic look for a classic book. 3. Its a nice sturdy hard cover and a beautiful one at that great if you love to collect books. CONS 1. the gold on the edge of the pages looks great on this book, however, on my copy on the bottom there is what looks like a spray paint drip stain. 2. the pages stuck together a little around the edge from the gold paint I assume. (not a huge deal.) 3. when you get to the centre of the book the pages sit kind of funny. As if maybe the pages in the centre of the book are to short. (not a big deal either)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing classic!! This novel is a great read for anyone who loves Arthur and his round knights. It was hard to get into at first as the writing is a bit tough but once you get the feel for it, it really is worth the read. A must read for all classic and Arthur lovers.
